Apps (shorthand for 'applications') are packets of software which are easy to identify, easy to download and easy to use.
Precisely what each app will do for you is clearly defined, so you can decide quickly whether or not they are worth having. Some are free, others you will have to buy.
There are hundreds of thousands of apps available already with thousands more in development, covering everything from lifestyle and shopping to business and social networking.
App availability is dependent upon the operating system your tablet uses.
New tablet app releases become available every week, so be sure to check regularly at your tablet manufacturer's app marketplace to get the very best experience from your device. Read on for some great app ideas to get you started.
